Deadly Niger Delta Militants Celebrate ‘Brigadier-General’

However, the group failed to name the number of the benefiting fighters. The Avengers have claimed responsibilities for a number of attacks against oil installations in the under-developed region. The group, also, notified the Nigerian military, and indigenous and international oil companies of an impending attack that "will shock the world".
